The cookbook is BIG so the kiddies can see the recipes (all with big colorful photos). Benjamin and I made the berry muffins the other night. He loved them. 

I have three copies. I’ll pick the winners at random. Deadline is Midnight on Sunday, March 15, 2009. To enter just leave a comment telling me about your favorite activity with the kids.

My favorite activity to do with my 2 year old daughter is to take a bath. We both put our swimsuits on and pretend our bathtub is a swimming pool. She loves it. We take bath crayons and draw on the sides of the tub. I can use it as a teachinig moment and talk about colors and shapers. We hold our noses and practice holding our breath underwater. Sometimes we take cups and dump water on our head while singing songs. It's a great way to spend a snowy afternoon!

There is a free zoo that is a ten minute drive up the street with us. Bean loves the animals, but he loves the long long slide more. We take about a half an hour to walk through and look at the animals, and another hour or so in the playground with the slide. And then there's the train, which costs a dollar, and has a real conductor who drives us across the river to visit the miniature village and the dinosaur forest. It's quite spectacular actually. We'll probably go next weekend which is mommy-weekend 🙂

tea party! i watch my 10 year old sister along with my almost 2 year old daughter, and their favorite thing ever right now is to play tea party. while they get all dressed up, i brew some tea for them and set up a little table with a teapot, cream, sugar, and little cookies. it's so fun. we actually bake cookies a lot, too. (can you tell i have a sweet tooth?)

hmmm well there isn't really anything I don't love doing with my son though I prefer it during normal daytime hours but I think…dancing and singing would be tops – and making him laugh and smile. he's pretty easy so its encouraging 🙂

Playing Monster! One of us is the "Monster" and chases the other one around the house saying "I'm gonna get youuuuuuu!!" It's super fun!

I like to cook with the 3.5-year-old because she loves to mix and pour things; we also have a great time "playing basketball" (she parks her tush in a chair and cheers my masterful dunks in the 4-foot-high hoop) and going to PetSmart to visit all the cats who need homes … she's convinced there's a pink kitty out there somewhere just waiting to come home with her. Until then, we donate a buck or two toward cat food and she and the 15-month-old love on all the cats through the glass. My favorite all three of us activity is going to the park or bath time, because there's no way I'm not fully engaged and transported to a much simpler existence 🙂

I have a huge long list of things I love to do with my kids. Reading before bed time, teaching my 2nd daughter to sew, going on walks in the summer time but the one thing I have been enjoying the most the last few weeks is Eating dinner together. This has been our time to talk about random stuff. Dinner in our house can be a full on laughing time.

Cooking and art activities is a favorite way for me to spend time with my 2.5 year old. He loves helping out with everything and as a single mom I have to find ways to incorporate him even when I'm cleaning. A new cookbook would be a fantastic way for me to find good recipes to cook with him 😉

With my 2-year-old son, my favorite activity is to tickle him. It can just come out of nowhere…either he looks at me or I look at him, and then my hand "shoots out" like a claw (remember "Liar Liar"?). His eyes open up and he starts this incredible giggle before I even touch him. 99% of the time, the stomach is the most ticklish spot on him. He just loses it and it's simply the greatest sound I can imagine ever hearing.

With my 10-year-old daughter, it's going to the zoo. We walk…we talk…it's just a nice, calming, bonding time between father and daughter.

My new favorite thing to do with my girls (9&10) (my son is 18 and NOTHING Mom does is FUN) is to go on this great hiking/walking trail near our house with our two dogs. It gives us time to enjoy an activity together that is quiet and requires no electronics! We get to look at nature and talk. Today we went 4 miles. The big reason this is a new activity is because I am trying to get in shape and I don't want my daughters to ever get in the shape I am in!!

We live in AZ and it is beautiful this time of year so we go to the park that is across the street from my sons school. I bring buckets and shovels for the sand and my son plays football with his friends. He is 10 and my daughter is 2 so they both love it. In the summer we don't go outside much, you know it gets to 100 degress plus so we swim a lot at the community pool, it is really cheap and it has slides and water falls. They love it. I also love to read before bed that is the best time with my kids.

Believe it or not, we take a walk – a very long walk! We have a pond in the neighborhood and have geese around – so we save bread heels and go feed the geese – even when it's very cold! She loves it and it's so good for both of us – it's probably 2 miles total walking and she's too big to carry so she's got to walk the whole way there and home! Would LOVE to win the cookbook!

My favorite thing to do with my daughters (9 and 6) is to just walk around town together. We live in a very small town, and there's nowhere we can't go. We also get a kick out of visiting old, spooky-looking cemeteries and other historical places around here. Yeah, I know, we're weird.

My favorite thing to do with my 15 month old son right now is chase him around the house saying, "You'd better run! I'm gonna get you!!!" He gets so silly when I do this and it's hilarious watching his little legs go. It's also funny when he runs AT me….I can tell he wants to get caught! When I "catch" him, I tackle him or pick him up and give him lots of kisses. 🙂

My favorite activity is watching my 2 year old discover the world! I love taking her to the park or on a walk around the neighborhood. She is interested in everything – the ducks in the pond, the other people we walk past, all the food in the grocery store. It is great to see the world through her eyes. She is just starting to show an interest in cooking, so the cookbook would be great! Love the paint color!

My girls ( ages 4 and 6) and I have sooo many "favourite activities" together. Right now we're really into arts and crafts, whether it's making people out of toilet paper rolls, paper dolls, or just drawing pictures together. It's good to have that creative outlet together.

Jen March 9, 2009 at 12:42 am

Well, I feel a little out of the loop as my daughter is 17. At this point, I like simply spending time with her. Since we don’t get to see each other every day, the time we do spend together is so important. Whether it be simply hanging out, watching some bad tv show (usually cuddled up on the couch – and yes, she would kill me if she knew I told anyone) or taking in a pro sporting event , we have found that we really enjoy each others company. She plays almost 100 games of softball each summer. Although she thinks she is too cool for me sometimes, this is the one thing she does not let me miss. As college looms in the near future, I know I won’t “have” her for much longer. I hold close each and every moment I do have with her.

The zoo!! He just can't get enough of it. That annual pass was the best $70 my mother ever spent on us. We've passed it's value 10x over by now and go at least 2x a month. The favorite is the pachyderm house with the elephant, hippos, rhino, and tapirs. He can spend an hour in there bouncing from animal to animal, laughing and squealing. Eventually we make it to the merry-go-round and ride it no less than three times in a row. I can't wait for the weather to warm up so we can go even more often.

My favorite activity with my girl is "makeover/concert." LOL She puts make up on me (with her famous 5-year old skills), fixes my hair, then puts on a concert with me where we sing karakoe. It's rad. 🙂

Irishmom March 9, 2009 at 1:20 am

Favourite? that's hard, because when I get the chance, which is not as often as I like, we enjoy most of the simple things. One thing they love, is to hear stories about me when I was a little girl – they beg for these – I've never truly understood the attraction, but we'll spend a good half hour at bedtime sometimes hearing about how I was just as messy, naughty, etc. as they can be sometimes. Reading is definitely top of the list in this house. It's a comforting thing to do at the end of a long and tiring day and seems to connect us somehow. We go for an icecream cone when they get their report cards from school and this is (for obvious reasons) at the top of the list. We also host and icecream sundae party for all the kids in our neighborhood when school comes out for summer – my kids pick out all the toppings and serve the other children their choices. Camping was added to the list last year, our first trip. OK, as usual, I've talked way too much – another favorite activity -we all talk too much but love it! 🙂 🙂

We started doing "slow-mo" fighting when my daughter was really little. It would preoccupy her if things weren't going her way. It also was a way to get her to quiet down and concentrate. Now that she's 15, I do it to make her laugh! We also have made a pact that her little baby brother (now 3 months) will learn from our wisdom and become a "slow-mo" fighter as well!!

right now in the moment my girls ( 4 1/2 and 3) are into pancakes.. it started w/the picky older sister wanting pancakes for every meal, and I looove how they help make them, mixing until they're arms are tired even if they have only swirled it once or twice lol, then when I was copying a recipe off the computer my 41/2 yr old.. got a piece of paper and asked to write a recipe..and she drew pictures (colored blobs,shapes) of what she thought went into pancakes… I loooove how were starting to get more into imaginative play.. and stories come out, and we move from drawing, baking… feeding our dolls, the story of play for that day. (yesterday, they parked baby doll strollers in the kitchen and asked me to b-sitt cause they were going to the gym to workout lol, i was laughing thinking i definitely go there too much. (also, love nature and finding treasures on the way to/fro the car to preschool were in Chicago so it's been freezing and we need motivation to be on the go and finding pinecones, random stuff has helped!!)

Hide and Seek. She wanted to hide in the shower, but was scared to go in herself. So we both got in the shower, then she told me to get out and go find her. Pretending like I didn't know where she was tickled her (and me) pink. I love to hear her little voice squealing in glee when I "discover" her hiding spot.

My daughter is only 11 months old so our activities currently revolve around me chasing her around the apartment and pulling things out of her mouth. However, since she was small I would sit her in the kitchen while I am cooking and pretend that I'm hosting a cooking show and she is the audience. I don't know if this is why she loves to eat and will eat anything or not. I'm looking forward to the day when she is my co-host and not an audience member.

With my 20 month old son, I love to snuggle. We have also started doing crafts. He loves to flip through magazines and make collages out of the pictures he chooses. With my eight year old daughter, we enjoy cooking together. She has learned how to make scrambled eggs and makes them for her brother all the time. This book would be great for her budding culinary interests.

My favorite thing to do with my daughter is cook – our favorite dish to prepare is homemade pizza! I prepare the dough and I clear everything off of the kitched table and flour the heck out of it. We both put our aprons on and grab our rolling pins and flatten the dough into a circle big enough for the two of us. Her favorite part is sprinkling the cheese on top. My favorite – just being with her.

Barbie March 9, 2009 at 3:54 pm

Favorite thing to do? Telling my 6 yo Jeanina about how I was when I was a baby , when I was in school and how I was with my Mommy (her grandma)> and this truly amazes her that I am also once a child. Of course I always highlight the really HILARIOUS ones, and never fabricate anything which makes it all the more pure and joyful.

This has become our bedtime ritual for us! We laugh at how the same we can be at some point. She gets to know me more, and she constantly asks me things which I even barely remember and is forced to recall now.

What an adventurous time we have, without getting out of bed 🙂

My daughter and I are members of the YMCA and we LOVE to go to group fitness classes. They offer a Latin Hip Hop and Drums Alive for families, we put on our comfy pants and dance the weekend away. Its an easy way to keep the MN winter blues away. We also have date night once or twice a month. We get dressed up and go to a "big girl" restaurant.

At the end of the day, about 1/2 an hour before bedtime, my 9 year old and I get into my bed and watch TV together, a ritual known as "cuddle bunny." Then once he is in bed, my daughter takes his spot until her bedtime. Its the only way I have found that allows each kid a 1/2 hour with me alone each day. Its nice, unless the other comes into the room. Then its mayhem. Ahhh, the single mother syndrome…

Every evening in the spring and summer, Sienna and I sit out on the porch swing with a blankie and she drinks her milk "mookie" and I have a nice cup of tea or glass of wine. We watch the sun fade and the kids ride by on their bikes to get home on time. This is by far, my favorite thing to do with her!

I love doing so many activities with my kids, but if I had to pick one, it would be when the whole family plays hide-and-seek. We all run around the house trying to be the most creative, while our youngest one stands by where we are hiding, and points to whoever is "it", giving away our secret. By the end of the game, we're all in hysterics.

The activities change throughout the years, but the one that has been the most consistent is when we all belt along to the music in the car. Being LA girls, we're pretty used to driving a lot and we make it as fun as possible.

As a single parent – trying to cook with my two kids can be a challenge but I've really tried to work it in. Not only does my 7 yr old build his reading skills, but my 4 yr old has learned how to use a knife (yes, I do let my kids use a knife under supervision) and both have learned some basic chemistry (like what does baking powder do). It's great – and besides, they will eat more of it if they think they made it

I think my favorite thing to do with my Son is to actually spend time together, especially going on nature hikes and checking out the rivers for the different wildlife. He loves it, especially in the winter time when the Eagles are here. I always take pictures for us to share with the family on flickr….I think what I enjoy the most is the glimmer in his eyes and getting excited over seeing his first Eagle of the season. Even though he's only 11…I am enjoying the time I have right now with him, because once he becomes a teen….I may not have that chance.

Honestly, my favorite thing to do with my 4 kids is make memories. It doesn't matter what you are doing or where you are doing it. Baking cookies, sewing Christmas stockings, reading and discussing books. Does it really matter? The most important thing is to engage my kids and create lasting memories for them forever. I truly believe that is the most important thing!

While we get him dressed and when we're up and playing, we love to do the hokie pokie! Cracks him up, which cracks me up! And as we get sleepy at night, I love to cuddle with him on the couch and read his favorite books. He's such a good page turner!

She sings every song and quite frankly, is a really good singer. So we sing, "Maybe", "Its a Hard Knock Life", "Tomorrow"….this is just one of many random things we enjoy together. But yes, she LOOVVEESS Annie….I'll probably take her to the play one day if/when it comes into town.

Oh, I have so many favorite things to do with Ty (3 1/2 years old). The sillier we act, the better, too! Probably my very favorite thing to do with him is to build tents by draping blankets across the furniture. We'll get pillows and stuffed animals and we'll cuddle up inside of them and sing songs and act like we're hiding from monsters (ahh, the imagination of a little boy!). He also likes to get snacks and cookies and bring them in to eat, like we're camping out. I think his favorite tent we built was the most complicated. I told him that I was going to build him a movie theater to watch a movie so we (and by we, I mean I) strung blankets from the TV to the couch across the living room and we snuggled on the couch and watched a movie together and giggled and tickled the whole time through. He thought it was so amazing and fun!

We also like to get out and jump on his trampoline together, it's good exercise for Mama and it keeps him in smiles and giggles longer when we do it together!

We cook together, especially on the weekends. Some of our favorites are cupcakes, cut-out butter cookies, waffles, veggie sushi, ricotta cheesecake…. Babybear gathers ingredients, measures, pours, stirs, uses the handheld mixer, chooses flavors and icing colors, and tastes the batter only before the eggs are added. It's a lovely ritual.

My little Ava is almost two. I love hanging out with her because she is so free-spitrited and full of life. Most things in her life, she finds hilarious. Our favorite activity is playing games. For two years old, she has such a strong and vibrant memory. To see her dance and sing ring a round the rosey is so sweet. We always make sure to include the baby dolls in on the games too. She may not understand the logic of the game, but she understands the most important part is to have fun. As adults we often forget that, but when I play with Ava I am always reminded of the simple pleasures in life. 🙂

My son (2) and daughter (4) like to help me work on just about anything. Both of them get a kick out of helping me wash my car. I let my daughter paint a small section of her room a few weeks ago. And she absolutely loves to help me plant, water and pick the garden. Sometimes I think they like being helpful more than they like playing. But then again, we always have fun when we work together.

As uncomfortable as it is, I love it and I sleep that way all night.

Our favorite thing to do with our six month old son, Logan, is take him for walks – both inside (malls, stores, museums) and outside (around the block, parks, sidewalks.) He's at that age where absolutely everything amazes him and grabs his full attention… However long (or short) that may be! Logan also likes to stare at people's faces and other objects, including the birds, the trees, the sky… And of course Mommy and Daddy!
